At the end of a long, cold, nearly bug-free winter, it's always a thrill for the insect enthusiasts among us to spy a group of snow fleas hopping merrily in the melting snow. While few may be fans of the common flea , snow fleas aren't really fleas at all. Snow fleas tend to aggregate around the trunks of trees. They've been known to gather in such great numbers that sometimes they make snow appear black or blue. At first glance, snow fleas may look like motes of black pepper sprinkled on the surface of the snow but upon closer inspection, the pepper looks as if it's moving.

One of the greatest joys of cold weather is the lack of bugs. When the temperatures dip in winter, it becomes an inhospitable climate for many of the creepy crawlies that make our lives miserable in the spring and summer — fleas, ticks, stinkbugs and the like. There is no need to fear the snow flea. Snow fleas are classified as hexapods, which is a subtype of the arthropod family.

Whenever ice comes it seems to change the world which makes it seem very powerful. Are there any good books about how ice changes things and in what way? Ice, like snow, changes the look and feel of the world and creates new possibilities. Its sudden arrival, and its extraordinary formation and transparency, give it a magical aura. It also creates new dangers — terrible dangers which are particularly risky because the ice itself is so attractive.
